Podcast: The Labor Day Poetry Show -- 2017

This morning's poetry show opens with Joy Harjo and her band Poetic Justice,  performing two of her stunning compositions: She had some horses, and Letter from the 20th Century.

Naomi Shihab Nye's very short story Thud -- the moment when the person to person connection wipes out islolation -- teases us with the change to come.

Elizabeth Alexander's Praise poem on the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama, and Marge Piercy's To Be Of Use officially open the Labor Day celebration. Alicia Ostriker, Philip Levine, Lucille Clifton, and Langston Hughes chart the courses of Labor's freedom. Ray Bradbury's Last Night of the World begs the question: What do we do with the time we have left.

This podcast was broadcast on on Labor Day, Sept 4, 2017 from the Red Caboose Studio in Bolivar, West Virginia. John Case and  Mike Diesel host.
